Last week: 1 (+0) Record: 5-0 The Texans were sleepwalking last week, but every team has a bad game eventually. What’s important is that they still got the win. They haven’t played a very tough schedule so far, but they’ve blown out all of the expected non-playoff teams they’ve played, except the Jets, by at [...]

Last week: 12 (+1) Record: 4-1 Winning when no one expects you to win is one thing.

Well, unless Miami is a playoff team, that spotless record seems [...]

Last week: 19 (-6) Record: 1-4 Cam Newton’s career record: 7-14. Have we overrated him? Well, that seems to be the common theme this week. However, it’s more likely he’s just having a sophomore slump. These are just the growing pains you would expect from such a young quarterback. He should be fine long term. [...]
